Mapped network drive not auto reconnecting at startup - Vista

Q: Mapped network drive not auto reconnecting at startup - Vista

Hi all, I am running Vista Ultimate and have mapped a network drive which is on my file server (running Ubuntu 7.04). Vista maps it without any problems, but when I restart the computer, the message "could not reconnect all network drives" appears and find that I have to type the samba login name & password again. I have the Reconnect at logon box selected (as shown in screenshot below), so why is it not auto logging on?

Preferred Solution: Mapped network drive not auto reconnecting at startup - Vista

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Mapped network drive not auto reconnecting at startup - Vista

I just happened to see this so thought I'd mention...

I ran into the same problem with our only Vista user. The share mounts fine once the system has booted but it fails just as you reported for remembered connections. In our case the server is Windows Server 2003. I haven't made any real attempts to understand the problem but I threw a quick net use batch at it until time permits.

Just in case, create a batch file with:

net use mountdriveletter: \\server\share /user:username password

Put it or a shortcut to it into your startup programs directory.

Hi there,
Although it's unlikely this was missed out, did you tick the checkbox when you mapped the network drive that allows you to reconnect at login?

Hi
 
We have recently installed windows 7 at work. We use 3 mapped drives (P,Z andT). Sometimes when turning the pc on in the morning the computer will not reconnect to the drives automaticley, Which is a pain. My question is, is there a way to
stop this, can you make them auto reconnect on start up.
 
Thanks       

A:Auto Reconnect Mapped Network Drive

Hello chrispch,
According to the research, the mapped drive lost issue may be caused by the several possible reasons:

 
Possible reason1. The problematic client doesn't reconnect to the target share at logon.

 
Please follow the steps to re-configure the mapped driver on the client and then check if the issue will re-occur.

 
Steps:
 
a. Open "My Computer"
 
b. Click on "Tools" and then select "Map Network Driver"
 
c. input the \\ipaddressofserver\sharename to give the path of the share
 
d. Check "Reconnect at logon"
 
e. Drive gets mapped
 
f. Double click on the drive to check.
 
Possible Reason 2. Antivirus software or Windows Firewall may block the SMB protocol on clients.

 
Please check if there is any Antivirus software and the Windows Firewall is enabled on the problematic client. If so, please disable them to check if the issue can be resolved.

 
Possible Reason3. Fast Logon Optimization is enabled on the clients. 
 
The fast logon feature may affect the display and drive letter assignment of a mapped network drive. As a result, the drive may have been mapped; however, the user on client cannot see it in Windows Explorer. He may recognize it as a failed network drive mapping.
This is the reason why we usually suggest you to disable fast logon on the clients via a GPO, and please check if the mapped network drive will be occur under this circumstance.

 
Please also configure the following group policy setting to disable Fast Logon Optimization to see if the issue still exists on the problematic clients.

 
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

 
When this policy is enabled, a Windows XP client behaves in the same manner as a Windows 2000 client at both system startup and at user logon.
 
Please note: As this is a computer configuration, please run "Gpupdate /force" and then reboot the problematic clients to make it take into effect.
 
For more information about Fast Logon Optimization feature, please check the following KB article.

 
305293 Description of the Windows XP Professional Fast Logon Optimization feature

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/831998

 
297684 Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost
 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297684

 
If the issue still exists on the problematic clients, please also try adding the following registry subkey on the problematic client to check it works.

 
Steps:
 
a. Click Start, click Run, type REGEDIT, and then click OK.
b. Locate and click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache
c. Click Edit, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
d. Type SilentForcedAutoReconnect , and then press ENTER to name the value.
e. Double-click SilentForcedAutoReconnect .
f. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
 
Please feel free to let me know if you have any concen.
 
Hope the information can be helpful for you.Thanks and Regards

A:Windows 7 Still Not (Always) Reconnecting to Mapped Drive

If WD cannot help on it, there is a workaround we can try. You may open Notepad and paste the following commands into Notepad.
net use [driveletter]: /delete net use [driveletter]: \\server\share /user:[username] password /persistent:yes
Please save this Notepad to a location with a name reconnect.bat.
Then, launch Task Scheduler, you may create scheduled task to run this *.bat file. Probably you can set it to run after several hours.

I have an XP Laptop that is used to record video for our high school football team. When we are donw using the video on the laptop we store it on a TerraStation 2TB server in the office. It is always on and connected to a hub that the laptop is hooked to when on.

My problem is this.... when the laptop is turned on, the network drive I set up shows "disconnected", and consequently, the application for transferring the video to the server doesn't show the network drive to select... after I click on the network drive in "my computer", the application will then see the network drive.

My question is how to make this automatically connect when the computer boots. I set it up to "reconnect at logon", but it does not without me opening the drive 1st...

Thanks for your help in advance!

Reconnect at Logon not working

Me, too; I have XP Pro SP2 with automatic updates on 5 systems, and just this one fails: after most reboots, if I launch an application that was last working on a file in the mapped network drive, it comes up "unavailable" or "file not found" unless I visit Windows Explorer first.

I even tried putting batch files with shortcuts "n:\dummy.txt" and "m:\dummy.txt" in my Startup group, to force references to my M: and N: drives, and that isn't even enough!

No domains, just workgroup peer networking here. Like I say, works on all my other systems, has for years, just my latest Gateway Profile 6 acts different.

Hi there.  I have a simple 3-computer network setup in my home.  All 3 are XP Pro.  I have the "\All Users\Documents\" folders as the shared, mapped drive folders. Everything works great until I reboot.  They become disconnected.  I fixed it for one computer with a run command, but now I can't find it again on the web for the other two computers.  Anyone know this command?
Thanks!

My boss just bought 5 new Dell Dimension 2350 with XP home ed and wanted me to put them on the network. I've set them up and they can see the network fine, but when i map a drive and reboot the machine, the drives will not reconnect. I chose the options to reconnect but it still does not work.

Am I doing something wrong or is there something i can do to make sure it reconnects after a reboot?
 

A:mapped drives not reconnecting in XP

I've seen this happen, and haven't figured out why. Instead of wasting my time on the problem, I simply worked around it. In your startup folder, just make a new Batch file (.bat) with lines like:

So users at work have Xp or Win 7 notebooks.
For the XP users, they use mobile broadband, then cisco vpn to connect to our network and transmit a text file via an access database they use to a mapped drive.

For the Win 7 users, they use cisco anyconnect instead(latest vpn doesn't work wirelessly)

The XP users connect with broadband, then vpn then they can transmit via the access database.

The Win 7 users have to manually open the mapped drive to see its contents before transmitting. It doesn't seem to realise that the notebook is connected to the network and needs the mapped drive to be kick started.

Is there a reason/solution for this?

A:auto connect mapped drive via wireless and vpn

Use the logon script to auto map the drive for them would be the simple way around this. -WS

A:reconnecting to a network drive after changing computer ip address

You'd connect to it the same way as before. Changing a computer's IP address shouldn't prevent you from connecting to a network share unless you gave the computer an IP address on a different range, in which case you'd need to change that devices IP address to match the new network IP scheme. Can you clarify what you did and what IP addresses the network device and the computer have?

A:Mapped Drive Not Connecting at Startup

I don't think this is an issue here. Mapped network shares often get disconnected for a variety of reasons, the destination machine might have been restarted, connections to that machine might have been resetted due to limit exceed, network interruptions, you logged off etc. Once disconnected, i don't know if the system can reconnect until you initiated it by clicking on it manually.

A:mapped network drive and network printer offline

Hi!
here:
https://social.technet.microsoft.com...&prof=required

I got this advice:






Here is the code:

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)
Reboot



That has solved my printer problem, but offline mapped drive remained as problem.
Today I tested one more thing.

I mapped drive on comp#2. So now on comp#1 there are mapped drives Y: and Z:. Z: is actually map D: on comp#1 and Y is drive on comp#1.

I restarted comp#1 and Y: was online while Z: was not.

Interesting that comp#1 connects to mapped drives from another computer, but not to it's own mapped drives.

A:Reg Mapped Network Drive Opened With

In Microsoft Windows and OS/2, a mapped drive is typically the place on a networked computer's hard drive that has been created/designated and given a special name. It is created by an administrator, it is given certain permissions of use to be set by, again, an administrator, and will store information for particular users or groups, and basically contain anything(whatever) that is compatible with the existing system depending on what those who use it and/or create it require at a given time.

I have a laptop vista 32 home premium and a desktop vista 64 home premium I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router running kaspersky IS 2009. I have networked both computers and both computers can find one another. I have also mapped an external hard drive and both computers can find it. The hard drive is physically connected to the desktop. I can access it through the desktop. It is mapped on the laptop I can see it I can click on it but I get an access denied message when trying to open it.

I have permissions set to full control
I have user accounts on both computers set the same
Firewall is set to allow the traffic
and the drive is set to be shared

I can't open the network drive??
Any Ideas??

Thanks,
Mike

I'm using XP. I have mapped a network drive to a Windows 7 computer as administrator. I am trying to navigate to Z:\Users\Mary\Pictures\Mary's Pictures. But when I navigate to Z:\Users\Mary\Pictures I don't see "Mary's Pictures". I can see "Mary's Pictures" if I'm at her computer.

What do I have to do to see all folders and files on Z?

Welcome EddyQ.

do you have don't show hidden and system files unchecked in folder options? That could be the reason
or the user mary does not have sharing on her pictures folder.

I have three computers networked together via a Linksys Wireless Router. One Dell running XP Pro, and two HP laptops (wireless) one running Vista Ultimate x64 and the other running Vista Home Premium x32. I have all issues resolved (that I've discovered so far anyway) except one. There is a shared external hard drive conneced via USB to the XP, which I have mapped to both Vistas. I can see it when I open 'My Computer' but when I click on it I get an error that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to view the item." The odd thing about it is that I can access the contents of the drive by right-clicking on it and choosing either 'explore' or 'open.' I can access drives mapped from the Vista(s) to the XP on the XP just fine, just not the other way around. Any ideas?

I mapped a network drive for a restricted user. We're on an XP machine (sp2). When he logs off and back on the mapping is no longer there and he has to re-map it. He has full permissions to that share. What can I do to fix this so he doesn't have to re-map the drive every time he logs in? Yes, the "reconnect at login" box is checked.
We are on a domain but the shared folder on the server is on the same subnet as his PC.

I normally transfer files between my office XP machine and my home XP machine using a mapped network drive on the home machine.
I recently installed Service Pack 3 on my office XP machine and the mapped network drive stopped working.
When I turn the Windows Firewall off the mapped drive works again.
So I need to set an exception, I assume this should be a port.
What port do I use and should it be TCP or UDP?

Alternatively, is there a better (newer) way to transfer files between home and office?

I have a fix, I use psubst from here:
http://code.google.com/p/psubst/

This works (it has to be run as administrator with the /P switch to make it persistent), but requires a reboot for explorer to actually see the drives. I came across another utility which does allow the drives to be seen in explorer immediately:

http://www.ntwind.com/software/utilities/visual-subst.html

This partially works in that the drives immediately show up in explorer and are writable, but drives are not reconnected across reboots. So eventually I found this page detailing why:

This sounds like a permissions issue, try the steps below.

2. Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.
 
3. Click Edit. 
 
4. Click the name of the person you want to give ownership to.

Legitimately mapped drives are A: thru J: The spurious drives have drive letters assigned sequentially, and, of course, assign all the way up to Z--for a total of 12 bogus connections.

For consideration: two of the networked drives are on the same computer, and they never have spurious connections. All the spurious connections map to the same computer.

A:mapped network drives without drive letters

Unsharing those is going to be the only way to get that to go away, I'm afraid, and that's something you have to do folder-by-folder.

You aren't in a work-environment, are you? If so those folders may have been intentionally shared by your IT department/employer (just food for thought).

I have a mapped network drive called \\persr11. Now it is mapped to the drive letter F:. Now the problem is that when I try to access the drive from Windows Explorer(Computer), it says: "F:\ is not accessible. Device is not ready."

However, when I access it from the search bar like this: \\persr11, it goes into the drive, all fine.

How do I remap the network drive to the letter F to access it? Prefereble Command Prompt please. I tried the following command but it did not work, not for F: and not for any other letter:

net use f: /persistent:yes \persr11

A:Mapped Network Drive accessible, just not from Windows Explorer

If you go to command prompt, or make a batch file this will work. Make sure right after the \\SERVERNAME\Directory
net use f: \\persr11\DIRECTORY /user:LOGIN_NAME PASSWORD

I'm currently trying to troubleshoot a problem with my mapped network shared drives, the connection is unstable, disconnects and only connects after waiting about 20 seconds with the window open. After looking around I ran the troubleshooter which said that the "Default gateway is not available". Any ideas on how I can solve this issue? I've provided the ipconfig, please let me know if there is any information I can provide.

Thanks.

I am having the following issue:
I mapped a network drive to a Win Server 2003. However when I access it it takes ~20 sec before any new folder opens up. Any software initiallized on the remote drive also initializes for very long time to a point it is useless.

I believe it is related to credentials...

I use Workgroup and boths W2K3 Server and W7 Prof have accounts with the same name and password.

When I disconnect and restart then map - it works fine but after a restart (with mapp on initialization checked) it is very slow again.

A:Mapped Network drive freezes for few sec when any folder is accessed.

What A/V do you have running on the server?? That can slow it down. Unless your workstation scans Network Mapped Drives??

Hello,

Here is what I am trying to do. I would like to save / backup the mapped drive settings for specific users, as well as mapped printers. I currently have a backup script that grabs the user(s) profile and other necessary files. This is done when logged into the local admin account. Ideally I'd like to just make it a part of this script, but If I have to be logged in as the user to grab these settings automatically it would suffice.

The second half is that I would like to restore them as well through a bat or script file, so everything is done without as much human error as possible.

I am not sure where to grab all these settings from, if anyone has help or suggestions out there it would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
B

A:Offline Folders - on reconnect to network, mapped drive isn't available

Hi,

I am experiencing the same problem and found an old post Problem reconnecting offline files when mapped as a drive that complains about it, too. I can usually correct the problem by navigating to the equivalent UNC path in Explorer, upon which Vista will realize that it is actually connected. I am only doing this once a day, so it is bearable. Alternatively, I found that when I use the "Work offline" button before disconnecting and the "Work online" butten after reconnecting, things are quite smooth. However in order to get that button I have to open an Explorer window and go to the mapped drive location. I think MS should give the Sync Center tray icon a "Work Offline" option.

Cheers

create a spare account on vista, and give it administrator priviledges and a password, and turn on password protected sharing, this will give it a platform for authorisation.

Client is laptop running on Vista Business. Server is Windows 2000. File is on Host running on XP SP2. I can map the drive on laptop to Host but when I try to run an application I get message:

You must run APPLICTATION_NAME from a mapped drive.

I am running application from mapped drive so why do I get this message?

Only weird thing I can mention is that I have to specify domain name and user name to connect to the mapped drive. But once I am connected I can open all files. But the application I need to run gives me the error message.

Help anyone?
 

A:message to connect through mapped drive while connected through mapped drive

Is the application on the host or just the data?

Does another machine connect correctly?

If the app. is on a host along w/ the data, have you tried installing the application on your machine and accessing the data over the lan.

Other thoughts:
sometimes applications require an exact data path. For example, f:\app
this info is stored on the host. When you map your local drive, you choose m:\app

This is annoying. I logged onto my network at work with our home laptop--changed it to a domain logon. I then changed it back to logon to my home network as a workgroup and it keeps showing a mapped drive as "disconnected", yet the drive is connected. It also shows a little "arrow" on the network drive as oppossed to a red X and its definitely mapped (see jpeg below). I've disconnected and reconected it with no success. When the computer first boots up, it says it is no longer connected to my desktop computer. Also, when I log off, it attempts to synchronize with the network drive (I have "My Documents" on the laptop assigned to the desktop "My Documents".

How do I fix this?

I've recently upgraded my computer and windows 7 to 64-bit and I just noticed that I can't search my documents on my network drive.  I've read the various posts about this on the net and the solution is either to live without it or turn on offline files.  I turned on offline files and told windows to rebuild the index and waited for it to complete and it's still not working.  I see in the indexing options control panel applet that "offline files" is in the "included locations" column.  Any ideas?

A:indexing mapped network drive w/ offline files not working

If you go to Control Panel>Indexing options, click on the Advanced button. There should be tabs for Index Settings, File Types and Add UNC Location. Add the path to the mapped network drive. Note: Some versions of Windows 7 don't seem to have this tab, for some reason.

I am running a Windows XP workstation (SP2). I am mapped to network drives, some on my local domain, and others on another domain on which my domain account is connected. I am able to map to all drives and read, write, change, etc to all files in all of these drives. I can run a window explorer search on all the drives mapped on my local domain. When I run a search, even for any file, on the mapped drives on the other domain, windows explorer very quickly comes back stating:
"Search is complete. There are no results to display".

Has anyone encountered such an issue before? I have never seen this type of behavior. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Community,

I'm having an issue here, and reading through threads and forum posts - i'm getting nowhere.

I get no error messages when trying to open a file from a mapped drive.

I have a user onsite unable to open any Mircosoft Office 2013 files from any of his mapped network drives. If he takes the files, copies them locally to his laptop, then open perfectly fine. However, if i try to open a office file from their mapped drive, it just opens up a blank document.


--I've done the changing folder name of the Microsoft folder within %AppData%, still no luck.
--I've tried repairing Microsoft Office, still no luck.

I don't want to uninstall office, then re-install as i will have to drop the computer off our domain (Group Policy for some reason, blocks office.) *I'd prefer this to be the final option.

Surely there must be a fix around? Much thanks!

A:auto run admin rights Core Temp program at startup Vista/Windows 7

I use Windows 7 64 bit and Core Temp version 0.99.8.0 - 64 bit. It doesn't actually matter if you put Core Temp in the "Program Files" folder (or "Program Files (x86)"). I keep my Core Temp folder in the Program Files folder. If the setting above doesn't work, a couple of additional step you should follow are below (the number of the steps comply with the number of steps in the above post, so that step 12.5 below comes after step 12 above):

2.5. You can put the Core Temp folder in the Program Files folder if you wish (even thought it's controlled by Windows)
.
.
.
12.5. In the Advance Settings option, check the box "Delay task for:" and set it to "1 minute"
.
.
.
14.1. Stay at the Triggers tab and click New again...

14.2. In Begin the task, select At startup

14.3. In the Advance Settings option, check the box "Delay task for:" and set it to "1 minute"

14.4. In the Advanced Settings options, check the box Enabled

14.5. Click OK to close the dialog
.
.
.
20.5. Check the box "If the task fails, restart every:" and set it to "1 minute"
.
.
.
26. If the Core Temp icon(s) doesn't appear in 30 seconds after the start up wait more, like 2 minutes. If it still doesn't appear in the system tray, first make sure that it's not hidden in the system tray arrow. If it's in the system tray arrow, you can right click the arrow, select Properties, then select Customize notification icons and change the behavior of the Core Temp icon(s) to Show icon and notifications. (If you set the color of the Core Temp icon text to white, it doesn't appear in the system tray arrow window because of the white background, but it may still be there. Click the empty fields to check)

27. If the Core Temp icon(s) is not in the system tray or hidden, then run the Windows Task Manager. On the Processes tab, sort the processes by Image Name. Check if Core Temp.exe is in the list.

28.A. If Core Temp.exe is not in the processes list, then you probably did something wrong while scheduling the task. Go back to the Task Scheduler. Select the Task Scheduler Library from the left menu. Find the Core Temp task and verify that it's status is "Ready". If the status is "Disabled", right click the task and enable it. If the status is "Running" the task is actually running, so maybe you addressed the action in the task wrong. Check that and go over the other steps in the post above and here. End.

28.B. If Core Temp.exe is in the processes list, then you probably didn't enable 'start minimized' on Core Temp and it's window is either on the desktop or minimized to the task bar. Check that and go over other steps in the post above. End.

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
My pc was working perfectly for about a year now, but these days it started having problems.
In the past few weeks it started disconnecting from the internet with the message: you don't have a valid
ip configuration. (It was working on the other pc connected to the router with lan, and on the notebook connected through wifi)
A reboot of the pc/router did always solve my problem in these situations.
Yesterday, my internet connection started connecting/reconnecting, and I couldn't solve it in any way, not with
a restart, and not with that network repair tool (idk it's name, I have hungarian windows). When it stayed connected for more then 2 seconds I was even able to load google, youtube, other sites,
I tried some solutions, like disabling the energy saver settings, setting it to 10mb half duplex, etc, but nothing worked, my
internet kept connecting/reconnecting.
Today I started my pc and it works perfectly.. Any ideas on how to solve it? I have the newest lan driver.

Hello all. For quite some time, we have had the issue that when employees reboot their PCs and logon to the domain with their network username, their network drives mostly always show a X by them, which then the user thinks the drives are disconnected. Double clicking on the network drive will reconnect it and then are able to use it. My questions is, is there any GPO that would force connect the network drives back and show them online without the X that I can apply for our users? Any insight would be great. Thank you!

This can happen from time to time, its normal.

If the laptop powers down, hibernates or sleeps, it sometimes reconnects, but generally can't. Once it's lost the connection, I generally need to reboot the laptop, sometimes two or three times to get it to find it again, even with the laptop sitting right next to the router.

I'm using WPA authentication and have hidden my SSID.

Can anyone suggest what I can do to resolve this, as it's driving me crazy.

Thanks.

Mike.

Hello!
I am having a problem since 1 year ago, and i tried every solution to fix this. My problem is the network connection randomly disconnect and reconnect/ or reconnect, if I restart the modem or the Wifi Router. The network isn't disconnect, if the desktop PC is off.
I tried these solutions:
-buy a new network card
-buy a new Wifi router
-ask a new modem from the ISP
-buy new UTP cables instead of all UTP cables
-i format the winchester and reinstall the windows 2 times
I have not more idea, than fix this, but this is a very angrily problem. I fight this since 1 year and nothing can help.
I'm waiting for all idea or solutions, i can try whatever!
Thank you!

I am finally switching over my work computer from Windows XP to Windows 7.

I have multiple network connections I connect to when I boot up. I've set myself as a new user on the servers I have to connect to, Windows 7 asked me to put in my username and password for each share, all connects fine but when I shutdown and restart, I see all my Shares as red x'ed "disconnected" and as I click on each one, I have to put in my username and password again. Windows XP always remembered my connections and logged me onto each share at boot up. I've checked "remember my credentials" but it's not doing it,

Am I missing something? on any restart or shutdown, I have to click on each share and put in my login credentials.
 

A:Solved: Windows 7 not reconnecting to network shares

OK, I figured this out, using a Computer Name as recognized by the network rather than my username, it remembers and logs me in when I restart. Not really sure why this makes a difference, but as long as it works, one less thing to worry about.

A:error occurred while reconnecting - The network location cannot be rea

This problem still persists, however I have added the following to my troubleshooting:
Configured my user profile on a new computer, it works flawlessly
configured a known working user configuration other than my own on my computer, it does NOT work at all, same problem as mine.
Unhid *Administrator* and performed driver removal and re-install from that user account just in case, no change

Any networking gurus out there, please feel free to ask questions. I'd be happy to produce more information to help solve this problem.

In the past I had used an iOmega and a Seagate Black Armor NAS shares network delay reconnecting huge to both run Linux both ran perfectly fine until they eventually died I next switched to an Apple TimeCapsule for both network storage and as a router wap The TC turned out not to be the best idea as the hdd in them is huge delay reconnecting to network shares narcoleptic that is to say the drive goes to sleep very quickly and it is annoying to wait seconds for the drive to spin up if you let it idle for only a very few minutes However as you ll soon read I jumped from the fat to the fire So I had a Dell T running full-time anyway I bought two WD Red NAS TB HDDs and installed them and set them up in Windows RAID Almost right away I noticed this weird issue and that is after the initial connection to the Dell if the client was allowed to idle for very long several minutes and especially if it s a laptop and it goes to sleep reconnecting to the Dell can take many minutes So I started over and used Intel Hardware RAID - same result So in summary initial connections to my Dell T happen almost instantly reconnecting or maybe more precisely just accessing the T after an extended period on inactivity can result in many minutes of delay It matters not whether it s a wired or wireless connection it matters not whether it is a laptop or desktop this happens whether the client is my MacBook Pro my Asus desktop running W Home Premium my hp dv running Fedora my wife s Dell running W my really old Inspiron running XP The ONLY difference that I see is that occasionally the T will absolutely refuse to allow the Inspiron to reconnect until I reboot the T aside from that the problem manifests exactly the same despite the platform hardware OS I ve been researching this off and on for weeks but cannot find anything on it that is exactly like my situation I d sure like to solve this I ve used a similar setup in the past with a RAID card in an old hp running Fedora and had no trouble If I cannot fix this I guess I ll just have to bite the bullet and by a NAS enclosure and install the WD HDDs in it and see if it runs ok nbsp
